Advancing Environmental Methods with Application-Specific Stationary Phases
Event Date: April 25, 2013 at 11:00 AM EDT
Environmental testing presents analytical challenges due to the difficult nature of the sample matrices, compound activity, and the constant quest for lower detection levels. While some may view established methods as routine analyses, motivated laboratories seek out ways to improve current tests within established methodologies. This webinar will discuss the strategies laboratories can use to increase productivity by leveraging environmental-specific chemistries and technologies. Key points covered will include:

 The productivity benefits of using environmental-specific chemistries for various environmental applications, including pesticides, PAHs, petroleum hydrocarbons, and semi-volatiles (EPA Method 8270D) and more

 How to obtain drastically improved peak shape and response for common culprits of poor performance - pyridine, PCP, benzidine, 2,4-dintrophenol, and others

 Approaches to enhance resolution between closely eluting compound pairs such as indeno[1,2,3-cd]pyrene and dibenz[a,h]anthracene, n-nitrosodimethylamine and pyridine, and benzo[..]fluroanthenes

 How to unlock the potential of advanced instrumentation such as LC/MS/MS and GC/MS by adopting a comprehensive approach to method optimization from sample preparation through analysis
